In the same movement that waived Darius Stills, the Kansas City Chiefs re-signed former Mountaineer wide receiver Gary Jennings.
Jennings, a product of the 2019 NFL Draft, went with the 120th pick to the Seattle Seahawks. He stayed with the team until Nov. 5, when he was waived. Despite making the cut deep into the season, Jennings left Seattle without seeing a snap of game action.
The following day, the Miami Dolphins picked him up. A year after being placed on the injured reserve list, Jennings was subsequently waived by Miami as well. He played a total of nine pro football snaps, eight of which were on special teams.
He spent from Nov. 20 to Dec. 16 seeking playing time elsewhere, and the Baltimore Ravens took a chance on him. He stayed on the Ravens’ practice squad for seven days, but his time ran out there as well. Between September 2020 and November 2021, Jennings bounced around the Dolphins, Ravens, Bills, Colts, and Raiders. He spent four days in Las Vegas before being waived there as well. When the new year rolled around, the Kansas City Chiefs picked him up.
On Jan. 11, 2022, he signed a futures contract with the team. He was waived from KC on May 5, but the Chiefs re-signed him on May 10. He’s at the bottom of a wide receiving corps which features JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Josh Gordon, and an offense lead by former Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes and LSU’s star running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire.
